We never felt rushed and he was a wealth of knowledge. We visited Basilica of St. John,... More

My husband and I (seniors) did a full day tour with Dennis of TransBalkan Tours 10/2/16. He met us at our cruise ship as planned, and provided great information and background on this area of Turkey. Dennis' English was perfect, and overall it was a super day. If there is any criticism, it is that less time could be spent... More

Booking this trip in advance of our cruise departure was quick and easy and the whole experience was highly positive. Denizhan was exceedingly prompt in responding to our emails and in answering our questions. He was timely when meeting us at... More

In Kusadasi for a day on a cruise we organised a private tour with TransBalkan Tours (recommended elsewhere on TA) to Ephesus. We we amazed by the size of the site and the condition of buildings. Our guide Ezgi was superb. Her English was excellent and her knowledge extensive. She is also a friendly and happy person.

We booked this full day private tour before we left the US. On a cruise ship, we chose not to use their excursions. We were happy to have Denizhan as our tour guide. He met us with a sign at the port. It was only my husband, myself, the driver and Denizhan in the car. (Very clean and cared for... More

They responded quickly despite it being Saturday night and Sunday morning, Ogj (our guide) met us at the port with a driver. He took us in a tour of the Virgin... More

A very short stay for my family in beautiful Kusadasi as we were on a cruise. Our taxi driver and tour guide were both waiting for us at the port. They tailored the tour around our wishes and it was simply perfect. We visited the House of Mary, Ephesus which was simply amazing, as well as a ceramic workshop and... More

We had the full day tour of Ephesus, Virgin Mary, lunch and Semih was amazing! He was very informative, energetic and made a lasting impression as we had our tour some time ago and everybody still remembers and talks about it to this day! A wonderful place full of history and Semih was the perfect guide.
